Description from owner


Beautiful and private Vermont getaway on 17 acres of woods and fields. Spring is in the air and blooms are on the fruit trees. You will be greeted by colorful flowers and the birds will herald the morning sunrise. There is a slate patio with a barbeque, outside table and chairs, stone benches and a covered porch with a great view (and smaller barbeque, incase it should rain), there is even a hammock on the porch. Inside you will find a complete kitchen, along with all the pots, pans and utensils to make a simple snack or a fantastic feast. There will even be some breakfast fixings in the refrigerator and cereal in the cabinets. Living room and dining room are on the first floor, along with an amazing fireplace, for romantic evenings and an even more unique and amazing bathroom that opens onto a smaller porch, for an inside/outside shower should you choose to have one (you have never seen anything like this before). Upstairs there is a masterbedroom with a private bathroom, a second bedroom perfect for another couple, or the kids. The second bedroom has a full size bed, and two singles (one in a fun loft that kids will love). There is a bathroom on the first floor and another bathroom upstairs and a sunroom space with two couchs that could also be extra sleeping space.

ALSO AVAILABLE: Two story TREEHOUSE. Sleeps 5. Very cool! Type in "West Pawlet, VT, USA" and it will be at the top of the list.

West Pawlet is not a center for skiing, but it is centrally located to several ski areas in each direction, all within an hour. It is 30 minutes from shopping and fine dining in historic Manchester Vermont, ten minutes from food shopping and some dining options, 15 minutes from Lake St. Catherine, 35 from Lake Bomoseen. The water slide park at Bromley ski area is 45 minutes away and a large tree top ropes and zipline park at Stratton ski area is an hour away. Saratoga horse racing/Casino, shopping and dining are also an hour away. Closer by is hiking, cross-country sking, and farm/homestead demonstrations at Merck Forest Farm Center. If you like to fish, the famous Mettowee and Battenkill rivers are nearby. If you like to bike there are many roads with beautiful views, I even have a tandem bike for you to use if you like. There is a 30 mile long rail trail at the bottom of the driveway that is perfect for biking away from any cars. Horseback riding, hiking to the top of various mountains (one to two hour hikes) to see views of the surrounding towns. There are farmers markets in many of the surrounding towns for some local produce or crafts. Or simply take a cold drink out on to the porch and relax. Come enjoy the best of Vermont.

“Tranquility in a "treehouse"”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2021

We found ultimate relaxation at Rik's amazing log cabin on 17 private acres. When we arrived, Rik greeted us with warm, freshly baked bread, a dozen fresh eggs from his own "Rik's Chix" and other breakfast fixings for our convenience. The house is a work of art - with a shower that feels like you are in a tropical rainforest. Our dog ran off leash around the yard and meadows nearby without a care in the world of encountering a car. I also very much appreciated Rik's "garbage rules" - which were so easy to follow, and a lesson on sorting our garbage that we have brought home with us to try and keep our planet sustainable!
